Kieran Trippier close to joining Atletico Madrid

Kieran Trippier’ time at Tottenham seems to be over. The Englishman, according to Marca, has agreed on a four-year deal with Spanish side Atletico Madrid and will join for around €30m.

Trippier was pre-dominantly the first-choice right-back for Tottenham, however, an offseason with the club has seen him seeking pastures new.

Atletico Madrid initially tried to sign Nelson Semedoo as a part of the Antoine Griezmann deal, but when Barca refused, they turned their attention to the Englishman instead.

Trippier will be competing with Santiago Arias for a first-team spot in Diego Simeone’s playing XI.
